Brian Walton's news and commentary on the St. Louis Cardinals (TM) and their minor league system

Walton on Reyes on The Afternoon Drive

On Monday afternoon, via phone from a closet at Dodd Stadium in Norwich, Connecticut, I joined hosts Joe Roderick and Jay Randolph, Jr. on their radio show, The Afternoon Drive on CBS Sports Radio 920 in St. Louis.

We discuss the Cardinals Futures Game participants, with the primary focus being the factors surrounding when and how best to bring Alex Reyes to St. Louis. There are tradeoffs regarding his role, how he can best help the team and factors in his ongoing development. Catcher Carson Kelly, who was promoted to Memphis just after I went on, is also covered, as are Harrison Bader, Luke Weaver and Aledmys Diaz.

My segment can be selected from this page. I join the discussion at about seven minutes into the 23-minute clip.
